    ArmA 2 site hacked

    Again, it's fictional. It used the BIS font, so they did it. Maybe they're using some half fictional or even real stuff, but it's still made by BIS.

    ArmA 2 site hacked

    Well that map is clearly made by BIS. It's not a photocopy out of a real book or sth. Why? The text in the map is using the BIS font (Can't recall the name atm). I can't think of any reason that any nato allie will use that font. It's way too modern and costs money. :)

    Can you then please give me the meaning of the numbers? I mean other than that submarine!?

    Instead try to figure out what's up with the numbers in the picture from the 2nd "hack". That's more effective and will lead us somewhere. :)

    Hey dudes, now you're really drifting off topic with all that "new enginge" talk. :)

    ArmA 2 site hacked

    I might be able to go there on sunday, but I really hope that UnuldorCZ finds sth. because going there means taking the train back during the night with 10hrs of ride. Really looking forward for an AAR here.

    Isla Duala

    Since when is @brg_africa another dependency of Isla Duala? That issue kept our people crashing or beeing kicked from the server. Is there a place where you announce that stuff so I can fetch an RSS? It'd be nice to know in advance so we can prepare the server. :) I'm not downgrading the work you and others do on Isla Duala. It's an awsome map. So great that we built our training mission on it with a lot of shooting ranges, parcours and all that. But if it freaks out and makes people to crash, it's not good. :) Looking forward to some sort of solution for that. (Btw. the server catched updates for isla duala with brg_africa.pbo in the @isla_duala dir. But people have to fetch @brg_africa trough Sixupdater manually. It's not included in their download/update for @isla_duala. Intended?) Thanks for your help and the awsome island. :)
  9. Well it's rather simple. BIS made a mistake here with not waiting until every distribution method is ready to deliver the patch. You can now say: Well we're rolling it out anyway (as BIS did) and don't care about our customers that bought the game on Steam as every other publisher might have done. But BIS is really depending on their long-term playerbase. On all the communities out there wich make ArmA worth playing over a long time. With the move to publish the patch without caring about Steam users they've split the communities again. What is so hard to understand about that? It's not about that you may think Steam is bullshit. It's not the point here. And I really don't see the point a moderator in this forum, a somewhat official spokesperson of BIS, is dissing Steamusers and recommend other distribution methods. If that's BIS oppinion they should drop Steam sales. Easy thing. So back to topic: When will the patch be out for Steam users? We have to make the decision to lose the Steam players in our community or revert to 1.57 wich will involve a lot of hrs people might not want to spent and therfore dropping out as well. Whatever we do, we might lose some people on the way. Next: Will BIS finally learn and only provide patches if everyone (means Steam users as well) can update accordingly? (Updating accordingly does not mean to apply some weired patches and do some voodo afterwards, but the normal way. E.g. trough Steam.)
  10. That'd be too easy. Thank you Silola for this awsome piece of work. We have been looking forward to that a long time. :)
  11. Sorry guys, but I had to remove my mirror. You guys were downloading so hard, that the server crashed three times. :)
  12. You can unpack it into your ARMA dir. Then everything should work. If you want to use the updater afterwards (because ACE2 may get updated on a daily base because it's still beta) it'll recognize the files you already have and will only DL the new ones. I highly suggest everyone to do it this way. DON'T use the updater for the initial DL of the files, but use one of the (very fast) mirrors instead. It'll save you and others a lot of time. (This one has 1gbit, located in germany: http://49thblackdiamonds.com/data/public/ArmA/ACE2 )
  13. Mirror is up: http://49thblackdiamonds.com/data/public/ArmA/ACE2 Have fun with that. :)
  14. I would be glad to offer a full time german ACE2 mirror. Its running on 100Mbit and may be updated to 1Gbit soon. I don't pay for any over-traffic, so it's no problem to give that mirror to everyone. Let the backbone burn! :D The best way is to contact me via Skype. Ask ViperMaul for contact pls.
